Korean parents these days are mad about sending their kids to international school.
My cousin IS has recently moved to Manila – just her and her son and her daughter, the husband staying back in Korea. The sole objective is to send the kids to an international school here. The plan is for three years, at which point they’ll be eligible under Korean regulation to attend an international school in Korea, and she’ll take them back. Maybe. She had gone through the trouble of going to the States to have the kids born there, both of them, so they’d have US citizenship – at that time, non-Korean nationals could attend international schools, but the government has tightened the regulations since – because of people like my cousin. Now, students must be non-Korean nationals and have lived at least three years overseas. Who knows what the rules will be in three years.
When I attended an international school in Korea back in the day, I was only a US Permanent Resident – the rules were looser then.
